This is a great article. The fact that all of those companies that Caledonoa pointed to operate under vastly DIFFERENT business models explains why they were able to establish good to very good operating profitability quickly while Z still cannot after all these years. It is a STRUCTURAL problem with their business model. People like Schmoe like to inaccurately compare Z to FB. This is wrong on a number of fronts but in any case lets assume it is accurate for now....then go look at FB margins and compare to Z and explain difference at similar points in their growth curves. You can't. But I am listening. Thanks for highlighting this article. Ask yourself 1 more question. If Z/TRLA went away tomorrow would it harm the underlying Real Estate market/business? Would anyone really miss them? Answer is no. Maybe it wouldn't be as easy to get an estimate of your homes value but I like most people get 3 cards a week from local Realtor's showing recent sales in my neighborhood(s) and offering to send me a CMA on my home. Now imagine if Google or even an Expedia/PCLN stopped functioning tomorrow. Yep-you get the idea.
Too bad you weren't smart enough to play my SGY pick earlier this week!! Up almost 15% in two days from where I jumped in. These 10-15% trades sure do add up to a PILE OF CASH. I'll be looking to reload.
It must really suck to be a shorty in this environment. You must feel relief when that bell rings on Friday afternoon knowing you'll at least have two days where you won't lose money.
This is called smart day trading. I am only here temporarily. momentum plays and move on.
Scam Scam. I will cover before the holiday (monday) for a great gain. America is a great country. i feel so bad for innocent investors.
Sounds like somebodies short is getting away from him. Keep the stops tight in a stock like this. I know that's a day late and a dollar "short".

All the wall street scams bought below $100 and pumped it up with BS from Michael wanna be the stock guru who values it at $700 and dumped his shares at $125 and above in no time. That is 25% gain while you idiots bought is at $125.
If Mr Michael thinks it goes to $700, show us the new shares you are buying...liar liar liar
SEC needs to investigate his motives with BS valuation
